UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization decided on Wednesday that Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) and the Patriarchs Cave (MaHarat HaMachpelah) are Muslim sites.
Yes, that is what UNESCO says, contradicting the Bible that states that the forefather Avraham bought the Cave in Hebron and denying history that shows the tomb was built before Islam existed.
UNESCO refrained from listing the Western Wall as a Muslim site, but still managed to get in its anti-Israel licks by accusing Israel, and not Arab terrorists, of “aggression and illegal measures taken against the freedom of worship,” referring to the rights of Muslims and not to Jews.
It also repeated what the Israeli government has documented as a lie by alleging “Israel’s attempts to break the status quo since 1967.”
The vote on the UNESCO Executive Committee was 26-6.
There were 25 countries that were too cowardly to vote one way or the other.
